Tuesday, August 26, 2014

The Professional Petroleum Data Management Association (PPDM) has concluded meetings in Perth and Brisbane (Australia), together attracting over 100 data managers from the Asia Pacific petroleum and resource industry.

The Brisbane workshop included a talk on visualization and analytics of business data from a senior business intelligence architect at Santos, discussions on the fragility of storage media, and an update on the status of digital well data in Australia.

The workshop sessions covered themes such as the mix of personality, training, education and experience needed for successful data management, the most important tools that data managers need, and the future of the profession in two, five, and 10 years.

In Perth, there was discussion on conservation of data quality, a workshop on data types and metadata, and three sessions around professional certification, job descriptions and testing.

'It's great to see the engagement in Data Management, and in particular the subject of professionalization and certification," said Trudy Curtis, CEO of PPDM. "We are keen to see Data Management viewed as a career goal in the future, and the momentum from these events is incredibly positive.
